Back Carries for the Pregnant Mama

Without further ado, I present me, 22 months ago, just one week before Cassidy was born, with some pregnant wrapping suggestions and variations:

Fastest Wrap Carry

I often hear (or see, on internet discussions), people say they like their wrap but need a carrier that is easier for fast carries.  With wraps, a carry is as fast as you’ve practiced it.  I’d say the rucksack  back carry is the quickest, and it doesn’t take long to get it down.  Do the [...]

That Elusive Rucksack Seat
